Consensus Draft! Decision Cycles 7+8
Advancing the profession
The Power to the Profession Task Force is excited to share with you the final draft of Decision Cycle 7+8. This document, which includes the results of public comment and engagement with the field, outlines recommendations related to a supportive infrastructure and shared accountability for the early childhood education profession.
Join us! Releasing the Unifying Framework for the Early Childhood Education Profession
By reaching consensus on this final set of recommendations, the three-year, profession-led decision cycle process has come to a close, and we turn towards the next phase of implementation and alignment with exciting work happening in states across the country. To that end, the Power to the Profession Task Force will and event on March 9 to release the Unifying Framework for the Early Childhood Education Profession. This framework reflects unprecedented consensus by educators across states and settings, administrators, employers, and higher education.
Please join us, either in person in Washington, DC or online, at 2:00-4:00 pm ET on March 9 for an event to share the Unifying Framework. We look forward to coming together to celebrate our shared commitment, learn more about the recommendations, and discuss the next steps for making our vision a reality.
Stay tuned for opportunities to learn more and engage in the coming weeks, including through webinars, focus groups, and presentations from NAEYC and partners on the Task Force and beyond. Sign up for updates.
